The BlogClan Book Revival Project

*squee*

Hello everyone, Flame here! And yes, you did indeed read the title correctly!

Some of you older members might remember the BlogClan Book, a projectstartedlong, long ago by our Cinnamonswirl. Sadly, the book never kicked off and it fell into inactiveness.  But not for long, because you, dear reader, can help to revive it!

Let me tell you a bit about the BCB. (No, that isn’t short for Burnt Crumble Burning, either!) It’s a book about, you guessed it, BlogClan. It has loads of interviews! And illustrations! Short pieces of writing! Even a census!

So here’s how to get involved…

WRITERS 

We need writers to, you guessed it, write! I was thinking the dialogue from each interview could be written into a sort of short story in BlogClan’s camp including our fursonas and such. If you really enjoy writing words onto computers (hopefully not with permanent marker), this is the job for you!

EDITORS 

We need editors to shoo away punctuation, grammar and continuity errors until our project is minty fresh! They’ll make each piece of writing the best it can possibly be!

INTERVIEWERS 

Also very important! As you look below at the current chapter list, you’ll notice many of the chapters include interviews. And to have interviews, we’ll need our interviewers! I’m not exactly sure how the interviews are gonna play out at this point in time (By email? Comment section? Live chat? On the Wiki?) but we definitely need interviewers!

QUESTION MAKERS 

Well, duh. We need questions to ask our interviewees! We’ll definitely need a team of people to work out some questions before each interview takes place!

ILLUSTRATORS 

We need posh illustrations so our BCB can be the height of posh. (Flo suggested I be more British) We need a splash of colour on the cover for each chapter to make it look cool! No matter what your art skills are like, we’d love to have you!  It can even be a really really short comic strip, if that’s what you want to draw. Fine by us!

DESIGNERS 

I’m not completely sure what this position is about, but in the words of Sandyfoot, who can probably explain this better than myself… ”Another position that would be helpful would be a designer; someone to take all of the work from the other positions and arrange it on the page itself in a way that is organized, cohesive and nice to look at.” Wise words!

Some of you guys will know I started this out a while ago on the old BlogClan Book page, and so a few roles have already been filled. Not to worry, a majority of the spaces are open and ready to be filled! I’ll try to make sure everyone who signs up gets at least one part of their choice, promise. And if I don’t, or if I forget you, feel free to nag me all you want.

And so here’s the list of chapters so far. Credit goes to Cinny for the original plan which this is based off of-

1. Intro (an explanation of BlogClan- possibly told from a member’s point of view and stating reasons from other members about why they like BlogClan and what they think it’s about. Could be informative or more story-based)

2. Kate interview (how BlogClan came to be? Did she think it would turn out this successful?)

3. How the roleplay sites came to be, plus their eventual abandonment

4. Changes the blog has went through over the years; people’s opinions on the new theme compared to the old one (the problem with this is that we might need older members that can remember what the old theme looked like, unless we can find a picture of the old theme)

5. Interview with Copperclaw, if we can find her. She isn’t active anymore, but you never know… She was our first ever deputy and did a Week’s Round Up In Cats and all that. She contributed a lot.

6. Interview with Dawnmist- founder of the wiki and roleplay sites; our first medicine cat, of her experience on BlogClan and how she became our Polls Tsar 😛

7. Interview with Jayfrost- our new deputy. How the Allegiances came to be, other stuff, etc.

8. Interview with Kat- our new medicine cat. How the New Member’s Page came to be, how she chose Winterpaw, etc.

9. Interview with Shiv- how she came to lead the TSGN revival project, her experience on BlogClan 

10. Trailing Stars and BlogClan Rising’s history, who’s running it, etc, plus a Joshie interview

11. Dedication to past members we miss (Copperclaw? Rainsong? Swiftfire? Others?)

12. Interview a few people who’ve been on the blog for quite some time now (Amberstorm and Flowerstream, maybe?)

13. Voting for deputy and medicine cat, both 2012 and 2015 (I was thinking it could be made into a sort of short story- perhaps the cats of BlogClan of the two respective eras literally voting?)

14. Information on the Allegiances

15. A small census taken of about ten-twenty people on how they found BlogClan (we can probably ask for volunteers on the Tavern when the time comes)

16. Myth/Reality of BlogClan, like the origins of Cakestar’s name or how the deputy was chosen, maybe how we decided there would be a deputy (could be informative or a short story, it’s the author’s call)

17. Possibly a tour of BlogClan’s camp? You know, like they did in Secrets Of The Clans (or one of the other field guide books, can’t remember) where a cat of the Clans was speaking to the reader, a loner, about their camp and giving a tour.

18. Some sort of ending or conclusion, perhaps summarizing the book and leaving it on a cliffhanger for the future? (Could be a short story or more informative, author’s choice)

And here’s a list of the spaces filled so far. Don’t worry- we have tons left! Question makers and designers aren’t displayed because they’ll hopefully be working together every chapter.
